is no more

Liverpool Life The Josephine Butler House at the junction of Hope Street and Hardman Street in Liverpool, one of the great old landmarks of the city whose status has been open to question for some time as it stood zombie like with the surface of its bricks missing is no more. As I passed by this morning on my way to work I noticed that it has received a mortal blow to its side and will doubtless be a heap of bricks and rubble by time of writing.

With the umpteenth Tesco Express moving in on the property opposite, it's another sign of the errosion of Hope Street's distinctive character.

Google Street Map shows what the complete house looked like, albeit covered in scaffolding:
